OBJECTIVE: The use of statin and antiplatelet medications has been advocated in patients with cerebrovascular disease as primary medical therapy and as an adjunct to carotid endarterectomy (CEA). Our goal was to assess the prevalence of preoperative statin and antiplatelet use and its effect on perioperative outcomes after CEA. METHODS: The American College of Surgeons National Surgical Quality Improvement Program targeted CEA database was queried for patients undergoing CEA between 2011 and 2014...

INTRODUCTION: Hypertension (HTN) has long been associated with abdominal aortic aneurysm (AAA) development and these cardiovascular pathologies are biochemically characterized by elevated plasma levels of Angiotensin-II (AngII) as well as interleukin-6 (IL-6). A biologic relationship between HTN and AAA has not been established, however. Accordingly, the objective of this study was to evaluate whether elevated tension may initiate IL-6 production to accumulate monocyte/macrophages and promote dilation of the abdominal aorta (AA)...

INTRODUCTION: Gluteal artery aneurysms (GAAs) are rare, accounting for less than 1% of all arterial aneurysms. Most of them are post-traumatic in nature and involve the superior gluteal artery (SGA), while injuries of the inferior gluteal artery (IGA) have been reported less frequently. We report an unusual case of a patient with double saccular GAA of unknown etiology, involving both the SGA and IGA, successfully treated by endovascular embolization. CASE REPORT: A 80-year-old man referred to our hospital complaining of the progressive onset of left buttock pain and swelling exacerbated by sitting position in the last 4 months...

We report the case of a 71-year-old man complaining of swollen left limb and progressively worsening pain. He underwent surgery 12 years ago for popliteal artery aneurysm with proximal and distal ligation and venous bypass grafting. The patient was diagnosed as having left peroneal neuropathy caused by a 10.5 cm expanded aneurysmal sac compressing the peroneal nerve in the popliteal fossa. The patient underwent open repair with opening of the aneurysmal sac, removal of the thrombus, and sewing of the left genicular artery responsible for back-bleeding...

Blunt traumatic abdominal aortic injury in children is a rare but a severe condition. The clinical manifestation often involves other intra-abdominal visceral injuries and vertebral fractures. The best therapeutic management is still unclear with few reported endovascular cases treated. The following is the case of a 13-year-old male with an aortic abdominal dissection, spleen laceration, jejunal contusion, and hemoperitoneum after a motor vehicle collision. An endovascular approach was decided upon after the progression of the intimal aortic tear...

BACKGROUND: Increasing prevalence of peripheral arterial disease (PAD) burning and pressure to reduce costs and promote patient empowerment make outpatient endovascular procedures an attractive alternative to conventional hospitalization. For outpatient peripheral endovascular procedures, femoral manual compression could replace the use of arterial closure devices for small-bore punctures. Presently, safety and feasibility evidence for femoral manual compression is still lacking. FREEDOM is a pilot study designed to demonstrate the feasibility and safety of early walking after femoral manual puncture point compression following a therapeutic endovascular procedure for PAD...

BACKGROUND: Western studies showed vascular caliber changes post-endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR). This study aims to evaluate for postoperative changes of the common femoral artery inner diameter (CFA ID) in the Asian population. METHODS: From January 2011 to June 2016, 202 patients who underwent EVAR were reviewed. CFA IDs were evaluated at 3 fixed levels on computed tomography (CT) aortograms. Pre-operative and post-operative measurements were compared. Per-groin analysis was carried out after division into percutaneous access endovascular aneurysm repair (PEVAR) and surgical access endovascular aneurysm repair (SEVAR) groups...

BACKGROUND: Acute pancreatitis (AP) can induce portosplenomesenteric vein thrombosis (PVT), which may generate higher morbidity and mortality. However current diagnostic modalities for PVT are still controversial. In recent decades, artificial neural networks have been increasingly applied in medical research. The aim of this study is to predict the risk of AP-induced PVT by radial basis function (RBF) artificial neural networks (ANNs) model. METHODS: A retrospective or consecutive study of 426 individuals with AP at our unit between January 1, 2011 and July 31, 2016 was conducted...

BACKGROUND: When the common femoral artery is not accessible for infrainguinal bypass grafting, the profunda femoris artery (PFA) can be a valuable alternative inflow source for distal arterial revascularization. The purpose of this retrospective study was to evaluate the results of infrageniculate bypass grafting via the PFA as inflow source for critical limb ischemia. METHODS: Between 1994 and 2016, 68 patients, 51 men of a mean age of 74 years, underwent an infrageniculate arterial bypass grafting for critical limb ischemia, using the PFA as inflow site...

BACKGROUND: Pectoralis minor compression syndrome (PMCS) is a compression of the neurovascular structures in the sub-pectoral tunnel and remains underestimated in the management of patients with thoracic outlet syndrome (TOS). Its underdiagnosis may be responsible for incomplete or failed treatment. The aim of the study was to evaluate the frequency of PMCS in our experience. METHOD: We retrospectively reviewed all patients treated for TOS in our department. We selected those in whom PMCS was diagnosed with a systematic dynamic arteriography...

Ruptured iliac artery may initially clinically mimic an isolated inferior limb venous involvement. It was indeed an acute iliac artery dissection complicated by contained rupture and misdiagnosed as inferior limb venous thrombosis that led to the death of Thomas Mann in 1955. The details of the complex case are analyzed. Considerations of medical interest and on actuality of his work are also added.

OBJECTIVE: Ischemic colitis (IC) is a well-described complication of ruptured abdominal aortic aneurysms (rAAA). The purpose of this study was to compare the incidence of IC in patients with rAAA undergoing open (OR) vs. endovascular aneurysm repair (EVAR) at a single institution. In addition, we analyzed the incidence of ischemic colitis pre- and post- implementation of a formal rupture AAA protocol (rEVAR protocol). METHODS: A retrospective analysis of prospectively collected data on all patients presenting with rAAA to our institution between Jan 2002 and Oct 2013 was performed...
